    Abstract : Fostering sustainability transitions in the heating and cooling sector is a necessary and urgent issue. Steering mechanisms can enable coordination of actions by different actors towards common sustainability goals. READ MORE

  2. 2. Participatory Ergonomics in Product Development and Workplace Design Supported by Computerised Visualisation and Human Modelling

    Author : Anders Sundin; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; product development; human modelling; workplace design; participatory ergonomics; computerised visualisation; computer manikin; production system;

    Abstract : This thesis discusses and reports on improvements in workplace design and product development, with focus on production systems in industrial environments. The processes of workplace design and product development are considered to be both complex and placed under significant time pressure. READ MORE

  3. 3. Bringing System Dynamics into Action Research

    Author : Paul Holmström; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; process consultation; Operations Research; simulation; action research; modelling; System Dynamics; healthcare;

    Abstract : System Dynamics simulation is a computer-aided approach to policy analysis and design, often carried out by external experts in simulation. System Dynamics is particularly useful in complicated and complex situations, such as healthcare. However, research has shown that few models in healthcare are implemented. READ MORE

  4. 4. Towards co-management of Gialova Lagoon : A Natura 2000 coastal wetland in Messinia, Greece
